Right before I officially made the switch I ordered some math board games from zulily.com. If you are not a member of zulily, please do yourself a favor and join. It is for moms & children. Lots of clothes and furniture, but they also have educational games. Everything is at least 50% off so you can find some really good deals. The majority of the educational games and toys are geared for younger children.
Anyway, I ordered 4 board games to use in Math class. I'm going to keep three of them because someday I may teach math again, but I've decided to give one lucky reader the 4th game.
It is called GeoGems Polygons. It is for grades 4 and up.
The game comes with a game board, spinner, instructions, 6 sets of cards, answer key, 60 chips, and 4 pawns. The game is to designed to build fluency in naming polygons and identifying their properties.
The game helps with vocabulary such as angles, vertices, diagonals, isosceles, congruent, adjacent, and several other words.
I really thing it would be a good tool to have for the classroom.
